A beautiful Iglesia (church), simple, rustic and where you walk in and feel protected
Simple, spiritual, humble

OK, so its not the biggest, or the most replete, or even the most colorful Iglesia (church) I have laid eyes upon, but its modesty drew me in. The quiet, slightly must interior, the adjoining park, and the serenity did much to heal the spirit. Lovely!

A very nice church, with varied well-conserved barroque saints and religious paintings, all of which have their own plaques with a complete explanation about it. Calm, clean, near a nice square.

If the visitor is looking for a spectacular architectural interior design with golden and marble arches, impressive masterpieces, etc.,The Church of the Sacred Sacrament does not qualify for all of the above. La Iglesia Matriz is modest and charming.

It was so nice to see a church that is plain after the excessive wealth being displayed in many of the churches and cathedrals throughout South America. Oldest church in Uruguay. Sit down and contemplate the simple way the church is laid out and let your thoughts drift. What a nice change.
